I'm a bit of a novice here and wonder indeed about JAB quality. I must say first, tho, I can't understand why everything's so big! I just measured my signature suit jacket point to point; it's bigger than a 1997 Nautica suit my parents bought me when I was in college. (Yes,...

Quote: Originally Posted by Piobaire I have purchased a sport coat there. After wearing my coat a couple of times, I started to feel like I was getting poked by something in my shoulder. I looked, and it seemed the shoulder was constructed with what amounts to fishing line. What's up with that?
